I'm creating a discussion forum "web app" for a friend.

He want's me to add Facebook login to his site by creating a Facebook app.

Am I legally responsible for the data if I create the app under my Facebook account?

Who should register the Facebook app - the developer or the owner?

Can the right to the data be moved to a third-party after I finish configuring it?

I wish to prevent any possible future problems with privacy issues, I'm just doing a job, and I really don't want to have anything to do with the data.

Basically, you can transfer the app as long as your friend has a dev account
